So, it’s been awhile.
A rough few weeks, to be sure.
I won’t (can’t…whatever) go into it now as it’s still a little too fresh and horrifying, but trust me when I say I’d much rather have been with y’all.
I’ve been knitting.
My Frankenblanket is coming along smashingly.
Thanks so much to Michelle, Renee, Connie and Lisa (who is blogless…shocking) for their respective bits.
To contribute to Angela’s Salvaged Sock Bits Blanket (aka Frankenblanket, or Frank to those who love him) drop me a line.
I’ve finished knitting the front of the cotton tank.
Naturally, I’ll have it finished by October.
I have to work on my timing.
I might actually have enough yarn, though.
Perhaps I won’t have to get more shipped in from France after all.
Here’s the circular knitting needle holder I’ve been working on.
There will be eight pockets and a Velcro closure.
It’s far from finished and there are some major bugs to be worked out, but I’m happy with the basic concept, if not the end result.
The problem? It takes almost a full metre of fabric, so, unlike the roll up bag, it’s going to have to cost quite a bit more.
I’m sewing valances, drapes and pillows for the new Pick Up Sticks store.
The fabric (a heavy, embroidered canvas) Connie chose is understated and lovely to work with.
I’ve not been slacking.
